Scotland, Ireland and Wales consider bidding to host Euro 2020

Scotland, Ireland and Wales have officially declared an interest in hosting Euro 2020. The ‘Celtic trio’ would share this on a three-way basis. It is undecided who would host which games, but there is common desire to hold the event.

Other countries hoping to host Euro 2020 are Georgia and Turkey. Both have expressed interest separately but neither is considered with much seriousness. Turkey FA is suffering a barrage of allegations of corruption and match-fixing. Meanwhile Georgia, who hoped Azerbaijan would join them in their ambitions, have a shortage of suitable stadiums.

Some are saying that the ‘Celtic trio’ could gather significant support. The idea of submitting a tri-national bid will ensure qualification for all three teams. This may be seen as an opportunity for smaller nations for qualify by similar means.

The bid has yet to be officially submitted. But if the three nations agree there is a good chance the Euros will be coming to Scotland in 2020.
